What's on in Morzine in June

Fête de la Musique
A celebration that takes place every summer solstice in cities, towns and villages across France. More than a music festival, the Morzine Fête de la Musique is a free event that spills out from the bars and restaurants onto the streets and encompasses every type of music imaginable, from local amateur teen bands to professional classical musicians, from club DJs to traditional folk bands.
Fête de la Musique is one of those certain nights throughout the year when the French authorities waive normal licensing laws, allowing the revelry to continue as long as there are people with the stamina to enjoy it – it is definitely one of the not-to-be-missed events of the summer social calendar. For more details of programmes please visit their website directly.

Pass'Portes du Soleil
Classic mountain biking event in the vast mountain playground of the Portes du Soleil. The Pass'Portes du Soleil event marks the beginning of the summer season. Three days of mountain biking across the Portes du Soleil, the classic circuit is 80km long, and includes 7,000m of downhill and 1,000m of uphill. Fifteen lifts give you access to eight different resorts, with some great riding along the way. The weekend Bike exhibition and show is in Morzine this year.

Things to do

Cool off with a dip in Lac Montriond - learn to stand up paddle or take part in a yoga paddle - yes, that's yoga whilst balanced on a paddle board! It's an ideal place to SUP, and it's great for your balance, strengthens your core and can improve both stamina and upper-body strength, plus it's great fun and is something all the family can try. Alternatively take a kayak out for a more leisurely trip around the lake. And if you want more adventures, there's always white water rafting, hydrospeed, canyoning and wakeboarding. 

Mountain Biking
The lifts are open at the weekends throughout June and open all the time from mid June, but even without the lifts there are plenty of mountain biking cross-country trails to discover around Morzine and Les Gets. Mountain bike rental is offered all over town and you can rent electric mountain bikes too!

Road Biking
There are several famous Tour de France cols around Morzine area and before the summer traffic arrives, it's a great time to discover the many road biking routes the area has to offer.
